Everything started with a joke from a fan, who asked on Twitter for the singer’s help in paying colleges expenses. The surprise for the singer's fans was that she was really willing to help them, and started a contest via her social media.
Nicki’s request, for the students who needed help on their colleges’ loans to participate in the contest, was receiving information about their schools, so she could check if they were real or not.
Her fans went crazy and the requests on Minaj’s timeline achieved a good number of tweets. The singer honored her promise and TMZ informed that at least 3 people have received her help for paying their college’s fees.
